In reply to prozac withdrawl and feelings of failure, posted by Mary Beth on October 30, 2000, at 21:44:58

> I have noticed and increase in feelings of failure the last week. I have been off prozac for about three weeks now. Is this a phase or is this what I should come to expect. I am ok part of the day but I notice that when an idea of mine is not accepted or someone appears to cut me down. I quickly feel a sense of failure, no one likes me, I am so stupid, I am an idiot. Does anyone have any suggestions, the whole exercising at 10:30 at night when I feel this way won't work. It may also have some realtionship to being tired, bedtime. Any advice?

I experience myself doing the same thing and what helps for me is to initiate a dialogue with myself. When I call myself a name or a failure, I talk back to myself and say "no, I'm not" and then I tell myself not to talk to myself that way because it doesn't help my mental state. Then I try to look for good things about myself, look in the mirror and smile at myself and tell myself good things. You could try telling yourself of your successes in life and the good you've done. Something like affirmations. This helps me a lot! Hope it will help you. Remember, you are not a failure or stupid-you're a wonderful person!
